    Hi all

    This monday I got a mail saying that new 5.1 version was available and inviting me to upgrade my system. So what I have done is backed up my old one (which used the previous version), installing the new one 5.1, and restore the system with the backed up files.

    But now I have a problem with the Server where I have this 5.1 version installed. It is collapsing my network and I can not access the internet. My internet provider says that the server where I have the 3CX PBX software opens up to 65000 NAT sessions... and that is blocking the other pc's of the network to access the Internet WAN. When I shut the server down, the sessions go down to 14, and I only have 3CX and a internal FTP server for my LAN which of course is not the cuase.

    Is there any way to fix this? must I return to my previous version? does anybody else have this issue?

    Thanks guys.

    PCX is installed over Windows 2003 Server. 3GB RAM

    Re: New 5.1 Version Collapsing my network

    Actually, latest update was a month ago. Are you sure you've got your installation from our site? Probably somebody gave you a trojan or something. Latest update has revision number 4510.

    Re: New 5.1 Version Collapsing my network

    I also got the same email last monday from 3CX Team wich told there was a new verson available, so I checked out on 3CX Website, but no, there was nothing new...

    First, go to http://www.3cx.com/ip-pbx/downloadlinks.html and grap the latest versions.

    I would strongly suggest you that you do an uninstall. While it's uninstalled, check if the problem comes from another source. After the check, install it again. Your system behaves in a funny way, 3CX is not supposed to cause problems like that.

    Thanks a lot.... I was assuming something like that since I saw the behaviour.... I dont have the mail... even I must say it is quite realistic... and in the mail they knew the version I was using of 3CX.. Please let your friends know about this mail!!!... it kills your company network...and who knows what else. At this moment I have my antivirus running in all the machines.

    Thanks a lot once more!!

    Hi Again

    I have uninstalled the version I downloaded from the Fake 3cx site, and now I have downloaded the new 5.1 from 3cx.com. The problem I have is that seems that the Windows Installer is not working fine in my Windows 2003 SErver. I get this error message:

    Any help with this?

    Cheers

    jlabuelo,

    Can you please install the application using verbose logging and send us the logs afterwards?

    Run the following command to activate logging:
    msiexec.exe /i <path to 3CX MSI file> /log 3cxinstall.log

    Send us the 3cxinstall.log file so we can check what could be causing this issue.

    Yes this was a mail out for marketing reasons, just to remind people of the new features of 5.1.... It was not relation to an update of a build.
